Tigershark is a gemue; in fact, he the only one of his kind (his type is based on the tigershark, hence the name). He's a hitman for a powerful conglomerate run by a man named Marlin Cortez. Cortez has put out a hit on a woman who he claims is a corporate spy.
I won't spoil anymore of the story for you, but it is a great read! The action is fast-paced and well-written, and there are lots of twists and turns to keep the reader's interest. The book ends on a very interesting note; the author is very realistic. Her protagonist isn't the nicest guy, and he doesn't get a miraculously happy ending.
This book is worth the read, and I hope to see another book from this promising new author.
Tigershark, an almost beautifully-crafted gemue, is given a contract by corrupt businessman Cortez to find and kill an albino women. But when he catches up with Angelina, he realises that he is in out of his depth... and that everything he's held true about his life is a lie. This wisecracking merc has to accept the truth about himself, as does Angelina.
The world is grittily realistic, the characters are real and the plotline is well thought out. While the book could do with a touch more proof-reading, the read is not affected by this at all. I took it to work and dragged out every minute of my break reading it; at night I only put it down when my eyes were having difficult staying open.
Read this if you want to read original, engaging scifi.
The author uses some rough edges to successfully give it a very realistic feel as she smoothly reels you into Tigershark's world. As the story progresses, Tigershark gets caught up in a reality that most would lose their mind over.
I was so caught up in Tigershark and Angelina's story that I was disappointed when it came to an end. It kept me up late at night reading, even though my eyes were popping out of my head, because I just had to know what happened next.
Denise Randall is a promising new author with a lot of talent and I hope to see more of her books in the future
But I never realized I would be sneaking away into the bathroom with the book in tow just so I could crib time away from company to read it!
It was even more imaginative than I thought it would be and an adventure that kept me enthralled to the very last pages. Tigershark makes an amazing protagonist, complex and devious and vicious. This is definitely a book for anyone who wants to stay up late, reading as fast as they can to see what happens next!
What more can I say about this story that hasn't already been written?
Not much, I'm afraid, but this is one of my favorite stories - Tigershark, for all of his quirks and his strange environment, is a character that can quickly grab a reader and pull her under.
Randall doesn't pull any punches in her writing. This book is a wild ride of genetically mutated humans, their world, and the all-too-human aspect of prejudice. And maybe, a little romance, too. There is a fair bit of advanced technology (smoothly written), some esoterism, and plenty of action. And a few twists along the road that I guarantee will keep you reading.
